So many gurus are making the case that the end is near for the dollar and that gold and silver are going to overcome the unconstitutional and illegal naked short selling of gold and silver futures and reach new heights. I do wonder if you have thoughts on that subject?

I understand that the baby boom cohort is beginning to become eligible for Social Security Retirement and Medicare benefits at the rate of ten thousand new recipients per day for the next ten or more years. Lawrence Kotlikof estimates that the cost of all these unfunded promises will add up to 256 trillion dollars probably leading to raising the age of eligibility, cutting the benefits, raising the taxes and also printing trillions of dollars by the Fed.

I wonder if you have had occasion to comment on this phenomenon regarding analysts predictions of the outlook of precious metals mining companies.
